    Zhalo and Stormcaller are still going to wipe out that Nightfall, because Zhalo is fucking amazing and if only you knew the POWER of the Dark Side Stormcaller...

    So I turned in the "Lost and Found" quest to Petra today, I gave her the Brooch from finishing a Court of Oryx round. I got Queen's rep, and that was it. I thought I was supposed to get a Exotic Gun, but seems to have ended that questline.

    You apparently need to have a sufficiently high Queen's Rank, which is presumably Rank 3 or 4.

    Nah

    You just gotta do all of Petra and Varicks quests

    Really? Because my friend and I did all of the quests, and he recieved his right away and I have yet to get mine, and the only difference between us is that he's rank 3 and I'm not

    I've also heard this story repeated a hundred times elsewhere

    And see, that's the problem-there's just no checklist to know what the qualifiers are. I've heard the opposite a hundred times elsewhere, also.

    In my quest to get the Boolean Gemini, which Petra refused to give me after I did her quests (and Variks'), I decided to do what has been suggested online, get a reputatiom rank up with Queen's Wratg and see if they'll give it to me. In order to do that, I went to the abandoned quests kiosk and restarted the HoW storyline.

    Apparently, the Scourge of Winter quest that people have been farming exotics with 3oCs is now quest that starts off the HoW line. So I do that quest and, since I know the boss is considered and ultra, I pop a 3oC just in case. I kill the Winter Kell and BOOM exotic engram. Primary weapon, too. Turned out to be a Zhalo Supercell.

    And there was much rejoicing.

    I've been told and done so many things and none of it is right. I finished lost and found, got nothing. Went to the boards and found out that it was a known issue. Some suggested ranking up, so I did. Nothing. Some suggested to wait until daily reset. Nothing. Weekly reset. Nothing. I haven't done the House of Wolves quest so I'm gonna go back and do that, but I've already finished up the tail end of that whole thing that's in TKK. A bit annoyed, but not getting an exotic isn't a huge deal.

    I got my Boolean only after completing all of Variks' quests. Finished Lost and Found, but still had a bunch of Wolves of Mars stuff to finish. Completed those and talked to Variks. As soon as I was done talking to Variks a marker popped up on Petra and she had the Boolean.

    Yep. I've done Wolves of Mars. Have the shader, cloak and trophy.

    That's strange. I'm rank 4 with Variks and rank 9 with Petra, having also done all the HoW missions. Hopefully, you can narrow down the cause.

    It's likely a bug on Bungie's side, which will hopefully be retroactively fixable. I have a feeling it might be based on the order that things were done. I waited to get started on Lost & Found until I was absolutely done with everything "patrol" related.

    I didn't even get the lost and found mission until I was finished with of Petra's patrol missions and I finished all of those before really even looking at Variks' stuff on Mars.

    EDIT: Agreed that it's a bug. It just doesn't seem to follow any sort of pattern.

    Yes, Books of Sorrow, there are also a couple of Taken grimoire entries that directly reference the BoS.

    Sev: Your gameplay is the most heavily yomi based around. Usually you look for characters that allow you to force guessing situations for big dmg. Even if the guess is mathematically nowhere near in your favor lol. You're happiest when you have either a 50/50, 33/33/33 or even a 75/25 situation to go crazy with. And you will take big risks to force those situations to come up.

    I hope Hard Mode Golgoroth has more adds, my Stormcaller super runs out of adds to kill too early.

    If the Nightfall drops me the Lightning Helmet with the following perks "Gain super energy for killing minions of the Darkness" and "Health/Shield regens as you pick up an orb" I dont need any other rewards

    I'm trying to fit all possible Lightning related gear on my stormcallers outfit, I thought of saving a slot for Alchemist Robe, but then I'd lose Impossible Machines.

    My Titan is up to 285. Just need a little more to get me over the hill to 290 and on to Oryx. I guess I'll just keep running heroic strikes and hoping for 290'ish drops. Other than Xur on Friday, I can't think of any other way to really get myself over the hump. I have a few Three of Coins I'll burn on bosses.

    It feels like making it so that you need to live through the boss' death or making it only work in strikes/heroic strikes/heroic content in general would be reasonable approaches more in line with what I'm assuming the original intent was. Not sure how hard they'd be to implement.

    I kinda hope they do take that route so I don't feel tempted to cheese it.

    My guess with the 3s is they will just put a cooldown on them, 10 minutes should be enough to eliminate cheese.

    Apologies if this is back in the thread, but what triggers the Wolves Of Mars quest? I did the Taken War quests for Petra, where you need to clear the Champions on each world, and I was running with @Threeve at the time, and he immediately got Wolves of Mars from Variks, I did not.

    Is it story quest progression? I'm on Last Rites still so I don't have the Dreadnaught available for patrol, etc. I'm hoping/assuming that is it.

    Man that hunter exotic pistol is awesome looking. I also got a party crasher +1 shotty to pair it with when I get the quest.

    I also don't mind rift, sure you can get rolled pretty fast at times, but to me its a game that you can turn around a lot faster than control.

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    Would kind of fit their purpose, imo. Also, the Taken public event bosses consume it. I scored a Y2 Knucklehead Radar and Celestial Nighthawk using 3 coins dicking around Skywatch and Mars... while YMMV of course that cooldown would hit a natural rhythm of encountering enemies with a chance to drop exotic engrams.

    For the Threes, I'm not worried about cheesing it because with TTK, rewards aren't my main motivation for playing. Actually playing is the reward right now. Everything is awesome. There's still so much content I haven't done. Doing that with a cool exotic would be fun for me. Plus there are plenty of exotics you can't get from Threes, so there's no danger of "getting it all." But I can totally see not wanting to do it, don't get me wrong.

    Hit LL291 on my Warlock last night and my Hunter hit L40. @MusicDragon got her Hunter to L40 and LL224. Also got Boolean Gemini on my Warlock and finished up the rest of my non-crucible and non-raid quests with the exception of the 3 7-Orb strike kills with Voidwalker. It was a pretty good night.

    Might work on my sword kills and void punches in the crucible tonight when we aren't trying to push MusicDragon's light level a bit higher to do the daily mission and weekly strikes.

So if you duck and shoot you can finish it off. Outside of that any boners who need help with that I'd be down its a real bitch.

    Also, the rewards for running the heroic past the first three is the same as the 'standard' Vanguard strikes, so there's no need to keep running the heroic after you've done three unless you really want to.

    Fallen S.A.B.E.R. was hard enough on heroic, and I'm honestly not looking forward to doing it as a Nightfall. Things get so chaotic on the third phase of the boss fight.

    Find the alcove. Stand roughly in the middle of the room. When the spark spawns in there you will have enough room to back up out of the effect.

    You can also use the room to take cover from Taken coming in on left and right. Lastly when firing at the Echo. STAND STILL. The Echo aiming is wonky and predictive and it will miss most of it's shots at you if you just stand still.

    I finished it last night after maybe a dozen attempts, holy crap that fight is ridiculous. Didn't cheese it at all.

    You can sprint through the sparks and they won't hit you, it's really important during phase 3 that you destroy two of the add spawners (I honestly can't remember if there's a third) pretty much immediately. I saved my ult for the centurion and friends and took that one down second, used grenade + shotgun to kill the other one first, as soon as it spawned.

    There's not a great source of constant coins anymore, there not going to nerf 3 of coins because they want you to burn down your surplus. It's better to throw items at you at slightly better exchange rate for xur, and then later tempt you with direct offers you have to go get more coins for.
